  1. Nangs in the news: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2023-02-21/calls-to-regulate-nitrous-oxide-nang-sales-after-death/101997190 Are those miniature dispensers any good? Maybe you're supposed to buy a pack of condoms at the same time, to hold the gas.
  2. The more freely available the medicine is, the less viable their monopolistic business model will be. Legalisation would be the end of it, or would at least put an end to extortionate price-gouging. If only there were another aggressive, well-heeled lobby group like MMA ... but a lot more democratic.

    Massive clearance of small cactus

    Tried sharing link but apparently it's not working? I don't have FB myself.
  6. Someone sent me this link (below), I'm not related to this retailer nor even a customer of theirs. Some nice varieties on offer (browse by price> lowest to highest). But only a generic photo of each, it seems. Hey , Just letting you know... The store is packed a load of 'Ugly Ducklings' in need of new homes, and Hundreds of Trichocereus Australia hybrids, at a smooth $5ea, or $4ea when you pick 10+! Use code 'TRICHO20' in checkout. thecactiguys.com.au/our-store

    T. peruvianus "Matucana spineless"

    I would have thought that "landrace genetics" (in my case) if it meant anything at all, would have meant: hand-pollinated. But on second thought, how does any of this sit with self-sterility? I'm starting to think that "landrace" is not applicable at all to Trichocereus spp. (just marketing hype?). Surely in some traditional locale with a favoured variety, the custodians would simply clone the thing vegetatively? If it set seed, it probably would have been "open pollinated" (i.e. productive of hybrid form)? Yours looks similar to mine, I'm still hoping it will show spineless characteristics on maturity. I'll try and find it for a photo session. The cutting I listed above has gone to a good home.

    Bunnings finds

    Bunnings Coburg: those PC pachanoi were tucked away indoors, underneath a table, for the past few months. Severe etiolation probably now a selling point. Still >$50 each. And a bunch of interesting-looking Mesembryanthemum spp. in the "Pigface" section, dwarf pink, pale pink, and white flowering.
